Osborne Clarke Services v A Purohit: The decision by a UK law firm to reject a job application on the grounds that the applicant for the job did not have permission to work in the UK has been held by the EAT to constitute indirect race discrimination. The law firm had a policy of rejecting applications from candidates who required a work permit that adversely affected non-EEA nationals and could not be justified. Employers should identify suitable candidates first and then, if necessary, make an application for a work permit.
